You can release music by someone who's member of the GEMA, but the netlabel could have to pay for it each time someone downloads it (11,25 cts and 12,5 cts at the end of the year)

That sheds a little more light on the subject. Definitely a motivator to remove an item from a label's archives. So it's retroactive - even if the release was made available before the artist became a memember of GEMA?

Bad news to german netlabels, i think :(
In Russia here it is no laws like that.

I can say more: in 1st of September 2006 a new edition of "Author Rights" law was applied. Their says that an author can "publish his work to public" - it can be used as internet file piblishing...

I do not know how to traslate it properlly in English :(

Here is a law:
